What is Wallaby?
Wallaby has three great features. The Wallaby app keeps track of the rewards your credit cards earn. So, if you walk into a store and don’t know which card to use Wallaby will have the answer! Wallaby Boost recommends credit cards to sign-up for based on the current cards in your wallet. Finally, the Wallaby card is similar to Coin (Disclaimer: That is a referral link. Thank you for your support!), since they both are aiming to combine all of your credit cards into one easy to use card. Neither of these all-in-one cards are on the market yet, so it’s hard to say how well they will work.
Why Use Wallaby?
Wallaby is free and offers you a very easy way to remember the rewards your credit cards earn. I use the Wallaby app everywhere I go, so I can be sure I am maximizing my reward points and miles. It also works great for my wife, since she doesn’t have any idea which credit card earns which reward. All she has to do is open the Wallaby app and check which card to use. Another reason to use Wallaby is Wallaby Boost. Wallaby Boost provides a great way to plan your next credit card churn.
Sign up for Wallaby
Go to Walla.by and send the download link to your phone. You could alternatively go to the App Store or Google Play and download it there.
Now open the app and select “New Account”. Enter your information and login.
Also, if you click on the card details you can see the rewards that each of your cards offer.
Now that you have at least a few credit cards registered to Wallaby, you can choose to connect your cards to their respective banks as well. If you do, it will give you more features in the Dashboard section of the app. For instance, if you connect your banks you can view your credit utilization, spending habits, and rewards earned/missed. This information may not matter to you, however I find it useful to see my credit utilization in this app.
The Wallaby app has 6 main sections. They are:
If you go to a store, the main section you will want to use is Places. For example, let’s say I went to Meijer. I would grab my phone and navigate to the Places section. As you will see below Wallaby suggests I use my American Express Blue Cash Preferred since it gets 6% cash back at grocery stores. It’s that easy!
